If he had backed into a car, not a single person would be blaming the car driver.Oh 'apparently' is it?
The van driver fucked up. People fuck up on the road. It happens to us all, pedestrians, cyclists, drivers. Also it's much more dangerous when a driver fucks up because of the heavy vehicle.
I also know that when you fuck up like that the instinct is to get out of the fuck up ie reverse as quickly as possible.
It's clear he had to reverse but still the cyclist put himself in a position behind the van.
Aka compounding an already dangerous position.
The only logical reason I can see as a cyclist is for likes and drama on YouTube.
Technicality = what actually happened, he didn't stop.'Ive got you on a technicality'
He was in fact travelling at 1mph when he went through a narrow gap left by the van that had gone the wrong way and proceeded to move 'very slowly' in the vans blind spot.
If he had backed into a car that had driven into the narrow space left by a van turning the wrong way down a bike lane and then gone really slowly?If he had backed into a car, not a single person would be blaming the car driver.
Technicality = what actually happened, he didn't stop.
Of course you refuse to accept that because you're a fervent follower of all these militant cyclists
RIPStopped at Dennehys Cross earlier going from Rondezvous direction to UCC. I was second car at the lights when they turned green. Just taking off and the fella in front of me jammed on the brakes.
2 cyclists coming from UCC direction turned right towards Victoria Cross. No lights on the bikes, no helmet and no hi vis. Fair play to your man for reacting quickly. Absolute madness.
